Seguridad, visibilidad e inclusión: diversidad e inclusión en educación en sexualidad; nota informativa

This note highlights the need for comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) that is inclusive of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions (SOGIE) to promote safety and inclusion for all learners. Despite global progress, there are still gaps in evidence-based content and delivery, and discrimination based on SOGIE remains pervasive and harmful. The document offers key findings and recommendations for policy makers and practitioners, emphasizing the importance of teacher training and monitoring for quality implementation to ensure learners’ well-being in all their diversity. The brief is based on the full Safe, seen and included research report (forthcoming), which is grounded in an extensive literature review, in-depth individual interviews with 31 national, regional and global key informants, and a global consultation meeting involving national governments, civil society organizations and other actors.
